We do go from the Highlands to dip down into Glasgow and learn more of the life in the city in the 1880s.

Peggy’s love interest? Someone you have met before… any guesses? Are you looking forward to her story?

A Romantic Marquess

By Kathy Heart

Annabelle Tracy dreams of a white knight coming to sweep her off her feet with his passionate love, and carrying her off to his castle where he will shower her with love forever. But she is a poor girl. Her father is a hunter, her mother a seamstress, and she but a lowly village girl, assisting her mother in the family business.

A chance meeting down by the river leads to her ravishment at the hands of the son of the Duke of Blanchester, the dashing Daniel Banner, Marquess of Aberling, with whom she falls in love. He also declares his love, but confesses that he cannot marry her as he is promised to another. She refuses to be his mistress, but when she discovers that she is with child by him, she is forced to seek his aid. She adamantly refuses to let him back into her heart, though she insists that he bear his responsibility as the father of their child, and Daniel must redeem himself completely in her eyes.

Will he choose Anna this time above his duty, or will she once again have her dreams hopelessly dashed?

A Romantic Marquess is an 18,000-word regency romance story that contains sexual content and guarantees a happily ever after.

The Duke She Wished For

By Ellie St. Clair

Tabitha Blackmore is a woman who knows what she wants.
A life of her own, one free from her hostile stepmother and gold-digging stepsister, and the ability to profit from her own talent. Working out of the shop her father began, Tabitha creates some of the most noteworthy hats and accessories in London, and looks forward to the day she can attend millinery school in Paris and break free of her current life. An opportunity arises to outfit and protect the Duchess of Stowe, leading to a chance meeting with her son, the Duke.

Nicholas Fairchild is a duke in name but not at heart.
As his mother returns to society following her mourning period for his father, Nicholas dreads his responsibility to entertain vapid, fortune-seeking socialites and, eventually, find a wife. He happens upon Tabitha, who is everything he would have hoped for but nothing that he would have ever expected.

He’s a duke who holds honesty above all; she’s a commoner hiding her true identity. Can they find their happily ever after at the masquerade, or will what separates them be too much to overcome when the final chime sounds at midnight?

The Baron's Malady

By Rose Pearson

Lord Gideon Ward lived for adventure.

He found all he could handle as a British Navy captain stationed in India. With the unrest that was brewing there, it was all too easy to ignore the trials existing back home with the Scarlet Fever once again ravaging the country. It wasn’t until the disease struck his own father that he becomes forced to contend with the actual trials of his own country.

Coming back home to accept the title that is his birthright, Gideon, now the Baron Dunstable, must once again face the world he left. Although the world he left was not one in the grips of an epidemic. London is still ravaged by the disease that claimed his very father, and it looks as though it is not yet finished with his family.

A frantic search for a doctor brings him into contact with Josephine Noe, whose own life has been fully changed in the wake of tragedy left behind by the disease. Together, they do what comes naturally to two independent spirits who find themselves faced with hardships…everything they can.

And in doing so, love just might find its way through the darkness. A love that unfortunately comes with its own trials and tribulations. After all, he is a Baron now, and who is she but another poor young woman. Another woman fighting to keep others from having to face the tragedy that ravaged her own life.
